The first sentence of this book provides an alarming statistic: “atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most important clinical arrhythmia and affects an estimated 33 million people worldwide.” The risk for AF increases with aging, which leaves all of us potentially at risk. Atrial Fibrillation discusses assessment and various medical, surgical, and cardiac catheterization procedures that may be initiated to manage the patient in AF and addresses the roles of the different providers that interact with the individual in both the outpatient and inpatient environment. Case studies are provided at the end of the book.
